No beauty product can quite replicate that post workout glow like a good sweaty work out can.

There are many health benefits of working up a sweat but lets focus on the beauty benefits for a sec:

  • It helps clear up your skin by opening your pores and releasing toxins, oil and bacteria that can get caught in them and would otherwise cause a breakout!
    HOWEVER it is important to note that you should always wash your face ASAP after a good sweat sesh. Letting the sweat sit on your skin will just send all that oil and gunk back into your pores and cause more breakouts or skin irritations.
  • It releases endorphin’s which help decrease cortisol (the stress hormone) this is important as stress can lead to breakouts and premature aging.
  • It helps your body produce more collagen which is a protein that keeps your skin looking firm and young.
  • It sends oxygenated blood to your face/ skin which keeps your skin glowing for hours after a workout.
